Earth Day Snack Ideas

April 9, 2023

Hooray for Earth Day (April 22)! Our planet is very important to us because it provides all the things we need to survive. Earth is also home to billions of other animals who all count on the same fresh air, water and food to survive. That is a lot of living things!  

Let’s celebrate the bounty we can find right here on our home planet by whipping up some fun Earth Day snacks!

This is a fun dessert to make AND to eat. You can follow this recipe or ask your adult to help you with the following steps:

  1. Crumble up some chocolate sandwich cookies by filling a plastic ziploc bag and smashing the cooking around inside of it with your hands. 
  1. Fill clear, reusable cups or jars halfway to three quarters with chocolate pudding. Then add a thick layer of crumbled cookies and top with plenty of sour gummy worms.
